David Colburn called teaching an (un)common read "was one of the most rewarding experiences of his teaching career".
Have you ever wanted to teach a course around a single book? The UF Honors Program invites proposals for one-credit courses for the Fall 2021 semester which tackle one book in-depth in a discussion format. Books may be from any genre — literary classics, contemporary works, nonfiction, graphic novels. Classes are typically capped at 15 students.
Please submit proposals describing your chosen book along with student assignments and expectations. These courses will meet one day per week for one period, so please keep that in mind as you decide on the output you expect from students. With input from students and faculty, the UF Honors Program will select up to fifty courses for the Fall 2021 semester. The Honors Program cannot offer an additional salary for faculty who wish to teach such a course, but we will offer $1000 in professional development funds (to be used for travel, etc.) to those faculty whose courses are selected.
Please submit proposals to the UF Honors Program Director using the form below. The deadline for submission is Jan 22, 2021.
